Amateur Eventer recovers from Traumatic Brain Injury to compete in her “Olympic Games”

The Horse Show is brought to you by Team Ride Safe, the Official Medical Bracelet of WiSP Sports.  When an emergency happens, time is critical and the RIDE SAFE bracelet will allow first responders, friends, and family immediate access to your secure medical history and contact information to facilitate rapid medical response and therapy. 

The Horse Show is presented by Chris Stafford

Jessika Kynett will be competing in the USEA American Eventing Championships next week in Tryon, NC, which is the dream of so many amateur event riders. For this police officer from Montana it means so much more, for Jessika this will be her ‘Olympic Games’, because she has overcome a Traumatic Brain Injury that she sustained in June 2016 that threatened not only her career but also her riding. Jessika tells the story of how an ordinary trail ride turned into a nightmare, how she found her partner Tanker on Facebook who doubles as a police horse and eventer and why she is pinching herself that her dream is about to come true. 

Jessica believes that if she had not been wearing her Ovation Helmet her accident would have been more critical. With safety in mind we are delighted to welcome Dr. Stephanie Davis from Team Ride Safe — the Official Medical Bracelet of WiSP Sports — who explains how the armband works and why it’s essential for athletes in all sports.
